We've funded more than 2700 projects and 1600 researchers to give people affected by a rare genetic condition a new hope.
What we do
We were made to give people affected by a rare genetic condition an answer – treatment for their condition. Rare genetic conditions are not statistically relevant when considered individually, but the same can’t be said about a person’s life.
We support the best projects chosen using a rigorous and transparent selection process, following consultation with an internationally-renowned committee of qualified scientists.
